33 days is not conclusive, 3 months is.  It's not likely for a test to turn positive after 6-8 weeks, but the official guideline is still 3 months.

Thank you. My anxiety is high I plan on going back at 12 weeks to get the CDC approved conclusive result. But i want to go back at 6 weeks just to gain some reassurance but I was curious if I would even see a difference between a 33 day test and a 43 day test, I know they say 28 days is considered close to 90% and 6-8 weeks is 98% im just extremely anxious and want to feel more comfortable and reassured with my 4.5 week test. Any thoughts

from dr handsfield to you:

You had protected sex.  Condoms work and hand-genital contact never transmits HIV. All the business about possible minor exposure to secretions despite the condomr about boils on your skin make no difference; HIV is harder to transmit than that.  Your symptoms are not typical of HIV and should be no cause for worry; most of what you are experiencing are just the physical manifestations of anxiety and guilt over a sexual choice you regret.

kindly move along...ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

yes you would have been positive on an HIV test if they were real ARS symptoms but they weren't because you NEVER HAD A RISK.
